Little Earth Project Elderflower Saison
Style : Saison
ABV : 6.6%
Bottle Size : 330ml
Every May we use the wonderfully aromatic elderflower, which grows around the lanes of Edwardstone, to flavour one of our beers. This year, we had a mellow Saison ageing in oak that we felt would particularly benefit from the addition of these fresh flowers. The original beer was brewed with our own organic barley a blend of hops grown only five miles from the brewery. The low hopping rate allowed a level of sourness to develop over the months it was maturing in oak barrels, resulting in a beer which is highly aromatic, dry, and funky - with a sharp finish.
